I would have liked the confidence to challenge sooner the in-house and aggressive agents who felt that they "owned" every single person in the town. I now know they were intimidated and fearful of my abilities :)
I can echo Hella's answer too (A supportive broker - mine was a competing one!)
A supportive broker.
I wish I had a clue....
I'd like to have all that money back that I paid for personal brochures, leads, coaching and every other get rich quick scheme that seems to rain on Realtors.

Hella nailed this one!
I had a mentor it was great! Once I took the state test and passed I was lucky to have a mentor who had been in the busy for 15 years. I really think that has help me last 31 years full time in the business.
It was not easy. I hope you chose a good broker and a good mentor. As a new realtor you have to have a strong backup.
Btw, I noticed you did not blog yet.
Wishing you the best in all!
More money to market my listings better.
An effective, working database! I thought I would never grow enough contacts to NEED a database! WOW, I can't even imagine / count the lost sales, transactions from names and contact info jotted down on the backs of envelopes, somewhere . . .
It was the fear of looking or sounding like I didn't know what I was doing. I needed the confidence that I eventually gained.

Having a mentor show me the ropes would have been nice. That would be my advice to any new agent. That and when you dont know something, ask your broker or management team and find out the answer, you will come across it again. Once you ask, once you learn, you earn that knowledge. Over the years, that knowledge will add up, knowledge is power.
Yes, I would have liked to have had a mentor to guide me in the right direction from the start.
